[Update: I have been informed by a number of users and friends that this video and hack is a complete hoax, but Arik was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I may be a bit gullible, but when I first saw it, I thought it was something really great to write a post about. Well, I must admit, I have been had, but it is ok at least I didn’t get RickRolled 🙂 Thanks to everyone for letting me know]
Do you ever find yourself eavesdropping on other’s conversations? Are you interested in listening to other cellphone talks? Do you have free time for a Do It Yourself project that will easily let you intercept different cellphone conversations? Then this fun project may be for you, even though it may not be ethical or legal (at your own discretion).
The video details how you can build a cellphone interceptor very easily. The steps and directions are explained well, and the only materials needed are a Television remote control, a metal bowl or wok (the larger, the better reception), and a microphone.
Based on the commentary, this could intercept calls up to 1-2 miles away. That does sound intriguing, doesn’t it?
Although we may need to think twice before actually intercepting other’s calls, you have to admit the concept is still pretty cool.
